Farmersville will soon seek public input on new city logo
FARMERSVILLE – Farmersville has a bit of an identity crisis, and the city council will soon be looking for input on a new city logo.
The city currently uses a rather basic, rectangular logo, illustrated by then-city planner Karl Schoettler, with “Farmersville” and a windmill in the lettering, drawn across a farmer’s field and a country road on the backdrop of the foothills. Trouble is, the rectangular logo that is currently in widespread use in Farmersville was never actually adopted as the official city logo.
Instead, city manager Jennifer Gomez said the official logo is technically the “cornucopia” logo, donned in 1960 when Farmersville was incorporated, and is not currently in use. At the Nov. 22 council meeting, council directed Gomez to hire a graphic designer to draw up a few options.
“At some point I’ll be able to take those concepts and our current [rectangular] logo and do a survey to the public to see what the public prefers,” Gomez said.
